thanks for the review! Very good unit indeed and the results are the expected ones, since it is identical to the P-1000.



It's a shame I won't get one for review since XFX EU is playing hide and seek with me

Nicely done

Question: Did either XFX or Seasonic unit made any buzzing noise (coils) at low load at very close distance?

Marketing, Marketing Everywhere!

I was actually surprised that they didn't put more gaudy marketing around the modular-connection or even at the top of the unit via those peel-away stickers.

With the amount of noise all the fans in the room were making, I was lucky to be able to hear my own thoughts let alone any buzzing. You might as well ask me if I heard any spiders walking around the room

Yeah - they're all over the basement. Big black ones. Don't bother me any... I hardly ever see them, and they eat all the other insects that venture down here. We have an understanding, the spiders and I

Wolf, that PFC controller chip is ON's NCP1654 working at 65kHz fixed switching frequency, which they've been using since X series gen 1.
